Prayer Book Revision

Poem By Roy Roberts

Assay the words that you have written,
Examine those which now are stricken,
and ask if these you label "old"
Are truthfully distasteful, cold.
I think not.
Are those you would proclaim most clear
More apt to catch the faithfuls ear
And tune his body to the role
Of kinship with a contrite soul?
I think not.
Has "thee" and "thou" produced a fear
That God will state he cannot hear,
When pious people say his praise
In humble lucid ancient ways?
I think not.
